Getting ready for Easter

I’ve been thinking the past few days about getting ready for Easter. 

Notice that I’ve just been thinking about it, instead of actually getting ready.  I’m good at that.

(I did actually do a tiny bit of decorating today.  I surprised myself!)

My husband and I had a little “date” last Saturday morning and went to World Market and Trader Joe’s to load up on Easter treats for the kids (and adults too!).  It was fun to find some new treats to try out and some old favorites (such as the TJ’s jelly beans!  Love those (and I really dislike regular jelly beans…I know, I’m weird). 


I’ve been thinking about what kinds of food to make.  I saw a recipe for Coconut Cream Pie a couple of weeks ago and thought that looked divine.  I’m a big fan of coconut but I have never tried it in a cream pie so I’m really hoping I have time to make that.  We don’t do a lot of sweets in Lent so of course by the time Easter rolls around anything with sugar looks pretty good.  If anyone has a particular coconut cream pie recipe they could recommend I’m all ears!

Speaking of ears…

I keep seeing these darling old-fashioned Easter prints and wonder where I could put them up in my house.  So far I have not decided…I’m thinking I should probably hurry up with that decision making process.  (In case you are looking for something similar, this one is from The Graphics Fairy…she has lots more, all free!)

I’m attempting to make a floofy skirt for our 5 year old for Easter.  I wanted to make a pettiskirt but all the tutorials I found sounded way to involved, plus I already had the fabric (chiffon) and I did not have enough to make the layers and layers of ruffles.  Hopefully I can figure something out! 


  1. I keep seeing those jelly beans by the check out & I've been wondering if they are good!
    What kind of treasures did you find at World Market? Love that place!

    1. I only got treats...some that I can't mention because the Easter bunny told me not to tell my husband :) but mostly for the kids. I wanted to get some of those melamine berry baskets that I have seen around the web but they only had one color left and I was more interested in the other two colors so boo! I could have easily spent a lot of money there though. Oh, I did get some Chocolate Shop wine for me!


I look forward to hearing from you!
